My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
I am sorry to hear about what has happened. What exactly are you asking from me?
I would suggest a fair price would be the costs of the surgery. If you choose to go ahead then you have the money to pay. If you choose not to then you have received the money as compensation.
If you wish to seek compensation from the neighbours or the tradies then you have to work out what your losses are.
You need a solicitor that practices in negligence.
You cannot double dip though. The insurance you get from SGIC is compensation for the injuries to the dog. The compensation you will get in any claim is the same and the insurer will have to be reimbursed you cannot double dip.
